Hanker Tanker, you have been taken from us way to soon. You were a friend to thousands being the truck driving man you were. You didn't know a stranger in all your travels and you will be missed by many. Nancy, Mary and Jesse - Hank left one hell of an legacy in this world and an impression on many. Our prayers are with you during this time of sorrow. Hank made a difficult decision during these last few week, but we admire his strength and will have an empty spot in our hearts missing him. Minnie will need to find a new lap to cuddle on as I'm sure her heart is breaking also.
May God wrap his arms around you all, and bring you through these hard times.

Dear Nancy, Mary, and Jesse
I am so sorry at Hank's passing. I will always remember how he helped me at times when I had things break, and how enjoyable it was having breakfasts with you-- Nancy--and Hank at the Mexican Restaurant. I will miss him.

Sorry to read about Henry's passing. We played sports against one another in grade school and hung around together some in high school. He was one of the good guys. Condolences to his family for their loss.
